Scott Wilson (from CETIS) has an overview of what he sees as being the VLE of the future … he feels that
The VLE of the future will look less like a Content Management System or Intranet, and more like a cross between Shrook, SubEthaEdit,XJournal, iChat, iCal, and iTunes (well, on a Mac at least). It will be slick and minimal, and will actually be fun to use.
He also adds
The VLE will not be institutional, it will be personal, and it will have features that support informal as well as formal learning situations, and a whole range of social activities that we would barely recognize as “learning” today.
Sounds interesting – and a world away from WebCT!
